Power, precision and digital connectivity.
The CXA80 must be heard to be believed. 80 Watts per channel of spectacular detail come from a super-efficient, fully symmetrical class A/B amplifier design. Separate, dual mono windings on a low-flux toroidal transformer also enhance performance further.
Together, these design details deliver incredible control over your speakers on a wide, enveloping, captivating sound stage.
